Fine And It Is a Very Good Learning Environment. I Have A lot of Friends and they help me with my school and i don't like the teachers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Posted March 17, 2012

My granddaughter is borderline MR she was bullied and beat up on more than one occasion the school dismissed it. Her face was black and blue she was called retarded on campus and feared for her life. She is being taken out on Monday in addition she did not get the extra help in school work she needed I feel she was a bother for the school I would rate this school a big zero!!!!

This school is too strict as far as I am concern, my son got 2 day in school suspension for having his shirt un tuck...I think that they need to focus on teaching kids instead of looking who is tuck and who it not. I was never made aware that there was an issue until he was referred to the office. When I asked to speak to the teacher who had referred him I was told that she would call to schedule a conference call and it never happened.

When I attended school functions with daughter, we were both ignored the entire time. Also they were unresponsive to any type of communication on my part. My daughter was being bullied by other students and I repeatedly made phone calls about my concerns and was transferred and left many messages to which were never returned-I guess they had more important things to do. We have been a minority in other public schools before but at this one we were treated like unwanted minorities-so if you are white you may want to find another school system to take you!

This school performs average for me. Although I believe the rules are too strict and some of them unnecessary. Also, it is in need of parent involvement and more funding. Not to be racist or sexist, but in all my years of teaching in Austin and having two children enrolled in this school, whom constantly both complain and brag about it, I have noticed older Hispanic boys tend to get into the most trouble. So, I believe we should not concentrate on what could happen and making more rules, but on the childrens' well-being and establishing trust and safety with them. Of course, you cannot do this for everyone. But it would be intelligent to think more about the struggling and troublesome students and trying to help them, rather than think about the TAKS and such. Also, my daughter recommends more activities for the 8th graders, they get uninterested easily.

I am not happy with Del Valle School District. I feel it is the worst district in the state of Texas. If you transfer your child from AISD or a low scoring school the district will label your child and treat them unfsirly.

This school district appears to very quick to 'downsize' any problems. When an issue has arisien with me, it is extremely difficult to get information from administrators. Teachers have not fully explained answers to my questions when asked, about subject content in the class. The administrators do not seem overly anzious to help this parent on any serious issues. I have considered quitting work and homeschool, just to keep my child from attending this school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
